The V&A museum hosts an exhibition celebrating photographer Horst P. Horst, which includes the Famous Vanity Fair portrait of Bette Davis
This Saturday the V&A will present the definitive retrospective of the work of Horst P. Horst, one of the 20th century's master photographers. Horst's portraits spanned a wide cross-section of subjects, from artists and writers to presidents and royalty.
In the 1930s, Horst began to photograph celebrities, both in costume and as themselves. Horst's first portrait of a Hollywood actress was of Bette Davis. His photo appeared in Vogue's sister magazine Vanity Fair in 1932.
Highlights of the exhibition include over 90 Vogue covers created by Horst as well as previously unseen vintage prints and portraits of some of Hollywood's brightest stars: Rita Hayworth, Bette Davis, Vivien Leigh, Noel Coward, Ginger Rogers, Marlene Dietrich and Joan Crawford.
